On Air

RIP Felipito Palacios

Last night, WUSB lost one of our original broadcasters and a dear friend. Felipito Palacios was the host of Onda Nueva, the king of Brentwood’s Puerto Rican Day Parade, an advocate for justice, a cornerstone of Long Island’s Salsa community, and the source of the warmest hugs. He inspired so many of those who volunteer at this station with his passion and support and injected so much energy into our studio walls with his jubilant live sets and hearty laugh. Our radio family is heartbroken and numb; it is thankful for the time we got to spend with this extraordinary man. WUSB is committed to celebrating Felipito’s legacy and we will be sharing our memories and his music in a more formal way both on and off air in the days and weeks to come. We encourage all the community leaders, musicians, and listeners who got a chance to spend some time with him to do the same.

Feminist director Lizzie Borden and Strong Island’s Yance Ford on Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2018
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Controversial feminist filmmaker Lizzie Borden and director, Yance Ford, will be Tom Needham’s special guests this Thursday on WUSB’s ‘The Sounds of Film.’ Lizzie Borden will be speaking about her classic indie film, ‘Born in Flames.’ Yance Ford will be speaking about this year’s Oscar nominee, ‘Strong Island.’

The newly restored high definition version of ‘Born in the Flames’ offers viewers the opportunity to see this provocative classic fantasy of female rebellion set in America ten years after a social democratic cultural revolution. The film tells the story of Adelaide Norris, a black radical founder of the Woman’s Army who is mysteriously killed. Her death, then, incites a diverse coalition of women from all races, classes and sexual preferences to fight against the “System” of oppression.

Lizzie Borden is an award-winning director, writer, and producer best known for her films ‘Born in Flames’ and ‘Working Girls.’ ‘Born in Flames’ premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. ‘Filmmaker’ magazine named it one of “The Most Important 50 Independent Films.” Her film ‘Working Girls’ premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Director’s Fortnight and won Best Feature at the Sundance Film Festival.

‘Strong Island’ is an Oscar-nominated documentary airing on Netflix about the 1992 Long Island murder of William Jr. Ford, a black 24 year-old teacher from Central Islip. Although Ford was unarmed, he became the prime suspect in his own murder. Director Yance Ford examines his family’s journey from the Jim Crow South to the presumed safety of the Long Island suburbs. ‘Strong Island’ was the winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s U.S. Documentary Special Jury Prize.
